principal planner, heidi's reviews

Hiring Heidi and her team at Ira & Lucy was the best decision we made while planning our wedding! We had a remote wedding in McCall, Idaho at a venue where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, had to be brought in from out of town through multiple vendors. Needless to say it was complicated, but Heidi managed it all with ease. Heidi and her staff completely transformed the space. I wanted an elegant but laid back outdoor wedding, and she brought all of my ideas to life and was able to create the unique vibe we were looking for. On the day of the wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that the Ira & Lucy team was keeping everything running smoothly, attending to guests needs, working with all of the vendors to keep the timeline, and handling any unexpected hiccups without us ever knowing about it! So many of our guests commented that they felt so taken care of throughout the weekend, which was important to us. When you hire Ira & Lucy, not only do you get a planner with impeccable taste and resourcefulness, but a team that cares about your guests and their experience as much as you do.

SIDE BAR: Heidi and her team are FUN! Not only did Heidi exceed our expectations in planning our wedding, but we became great friends with her during the process. We’re still texting one another months after our wedding! She truly cares for her clients — you are not just a number to this team.
— Bride, Sherri
Heidi and her team are the best decision I made for my wedding! Not only was my wedding beyond my wildest dreams but her team was so attentive the entire night holding my train, keeping us informed of what was coming next, and always making sure we were happy. Everybody knows finding time to eat at your own wedding can be next to impossible, but Heidi made sure my husband had more than enough of his favorite foods throughout the night (the only thing he wanted decision making power over). Heidi is nothing short of perfect and my husband and I will appreciate her forever! We love you Heidi!
— Bride, Emily
Absolutely Incredible! The team at Ira + Lucy is amazing!!! I cannot say enough positive things about my beautiful wedding! I provided Heidi with a very vague idea of what I wanted (farmhouse rustic winter wedding) and she took my idea and turned it into an absolutely stunning evening!! Every vendor she recommended was top notch. Her team pulled all of the details together and the entire evening was flawless. I had several guests compliment the décor, the food, the cake. Literally, every detail was perfect. Thank you so much to the team at Ira + Lucy!!
— Bride, Laurena
Even though I had a bit of a head start in the planning process due to the fact that I knew lots of local wedding vendors and people in the industry, I could never have imagined how truly overwhelming it can all be! Just a couple months in, I realized that I there was no way that I wanted to do this alone (nor could I!) My fiance and I met with Heidi the owner of Ira and Lucy Wedding Planning and Design upon recommendation from our florist, and I am so thankful that we did. When we met her, she had this calming presence that I knew someone like me would need on our day. Being very type A and wanting to plan everything myself, I knew instantly that Heidi was probably the only other person in the world I would trust my whole wedding day to. On the day of our wedding, I woke up knowing that everything was being taken care of. Not by myself, not by my family, but by a professional design/coordination team!

I literally cannot put into words how perfect our day was. How beautiful it looked, how it felt to see all that you had pictured come to life. All in all, my husband and I had the best night of our lives on our wedding day. Because we hired professionals to help us out, we were actually able to enjoy our big day and throw our friends and family basically just a huge awesome party. People couldn’t stop raving about how gorgeous and fun it was, and really we couldn’t take much credit! While it was inspired by my fiance and I, it only came to life because of our vendors.
— Bride, Makayla
Heidi and her team were hands down the best team I have ever worked with! I had a vision and dreamed of lots of bright colors and fun details and Ira & Lucy put those dreams into reality! She went above and beyond what I asked of her and always checked in to see if I needed anything, if I liked a certain idea and she also always had a smile on her face! Very professional and experienced! I would recommend to any bride or anyone interested in planning an event but needing ideas, or talent, or organization!
— Bride, Nancy
When planning a wedding, it can be overwhelming and sometimes nerve wrecking! Heidi is so professional and focused on making your big day effortless, smooth, and nothing short of lovely. Her staff, decor, and teamwork is amazing. They definitely have a beautiful way of pleasing their clients & executing each event with such class! I highly recommended their company! Very professional and friendly!
— Blair
I cannot describe how valuable Heidi and her team are to a wedding. As a groom, I was skeptical because I thought my bride and her mother were more than capable of handling it. I was wrong! Truly blown away by the organization and skill set of her and her team. They took all my wife’s decor and made it look amazing. They kept the whole wedding moving smoothly as well from a coordination standpoint. We had many people come back and say it looked like a movie set. They were definitely worth the money and stress it relieved from us on our wedding day. Check them out! Thanks Ira and Lucy!
— Groom, Matthew
When I came to Heidi with some ideas for what I wanted (and needed in a week) she responded so quickly and was on top of it! She is a ninja event planner and knows how to put an idea together and make it a reality. Even with only a few days to put everything together, her design was exactly what I was looking for and even better with her creative, fine art style.
— Photographer, Jenny Losee
My daughter was just married this month in Eagle Idaho and we hired Heidi with Ira & Lucy to coordinate the wedding. This was by far one of the best decision I’ve ever made!! Heidi was not only extremely professional and helpful, she was a lot of fun and had so many creative ideas. I truley can’t imagine going through the stress of planning a wedding without the help form this amazing woman. Money well spent. I would recommend Ira and Lucy for coordinating and decorations to anyone planning a special event!!!
— Mother of the Bride, Denise
Heidi is not only a wedding designer/coordinator she is an angel sent straight from God. Heidi took every one of my ideas and she made them all become one amazing outcome! She isn’t afraid to tell you when something won’t work with your overall vision and that is something that I, as a bride, needed. She gave me support, direction, expert guidance, and she also was a great friend through it all. Heidi doesn’t just help you with your wedding day, she makes your wedding day happen! Give this girl a call and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
— Bride, Brie
Hire a wedding planner. Just do it.

Since Bry and I live in Denver, and our wedding was taking place in our home state of Idaho, we hired an Idaho based wedding planner named Heidi and her company’s name is Ira & Lucy. Heidi was an angel sent from the heavens, let me tell you. My wedding probably would of taken place in a Zurcher’s parking lot if it wasn’t for her. I know what you’re thinking, “Wedding planners are expensive” or “I’ll just DIY my wedding” unless you are Martha freaking Stuart you cannot physically DIY an entire wedding, unless your guest count is around 10 people. Hiring a wedding planner was worth the money, seriously. And especially if you’re getting married in a different state from which you reside.

SENIOR COORDINATOR, VICTORIA'S REVIEWS

Wow, where do I even begin with Ira + Lucy, and Victoria. When I was younger, I remember imagining what my wedding day would be like and how beautiful everything would look. It wasn’t until we got engaged and started talking about planning the wedding that reality hit me, and I wondered how I was going to be able to pull it all off. We weren’t having any luck finding a venue, when out of nowhere an old friend highly recommended Ira + Lucy to us and said that Heidi had been amazing to work with for their wedding a few years prior. I instantly went online to their website and was amazed! The first thing I saw were the beautiful farm tables they offer as rentals, and upon looking further into their portfolio I saw multiple weddings they had planned at a gorgeous venue called Still Water Hollow. I filled out the pre-consultation form and couldn’t believe that I heard a reply from Victoria the next day! She was so nice and arranged so we could meet up at Still Water Hollow to discuss wedding plans. Victoria was so kind and shared with me how excited she was about my ideas for a fall wedding, and from there the rest is history. After the meeting I knew we needed to book Ira + Lucy, and it’s honestly the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding. From the first day to the last, Victoria was able to take all my thoughts, ideas, and wants and turn them into reality. From the colors I wanted, to the flowers, the décor, the style, and the logistics she was able to make everything perfect. Another major concern I had with wedding planning was finding the right vendors, and that was absolutely no problem at all for Victoria. She works with many of these vendors quite often, so she was able to recommend who she thought would work best with us and to fit our budget. She not only helped with coordinating and scheduling, but was there with us for support at every single meeting whether it was about floral, a venue walk-though, food selections, or choosing a photographer. She was there for us this entire past year answering the countless number of questions and concerns that we had while planning. Victoria helped us to stay on track and organized every step of the way with weekly email updates and an awesome online planning tool. Then, to top it all off, Victoria and the Ira + Lucy team worked so hard the day of our wedding to make sure everything looked truly amazing. It made us so happy to know that on our wedding day our families and friends would be able to relax, have a good time, and enjoy the day without having to worry about setting things up in the morning or cleaning up at the end of the night. I would without a doubt highly recommend Ira + Lucy to anyone who is planning a wedding. Not only will they help you every single step of the way through your planning process, but they will be there your entire wedding day making sure everything goes smoothly and as planned so you can rest assured and enjoy your day. Ira + Lucy, I honestly don’t think we could ever thank you enough for all your hard work and everything you did to help us plan the wedding of our dreams. Thank you so much for everything!
— Bride, Amy
Where do I begin?! I guess a year ago, when we started this journey with you, with the design board, Kate’s wishes and wants, my “we can’t afford it” comments and thoughts, and the overall wonder of how we were going to pull it all together...Fast forward, and WOW! “Amazing”, “Breathtaking”, “Stunning”, “Gorgeous”, “The Prettiest Ever”, and so many other words that everyone used to describe this most special day for the Arbons & Chens! And it was because of you, Victoria and Ira & Lucy, and your amazing talents that made this wedding an incredible experience! As mother-of-the-bride, my heart is full of gratitude for your guidance with all the details, the hugs of reassurance, the extras, like the cake topper, wine box, and those damn birds (!) and most of all, you taking care of everything on the day of so that I could be-in-the-moment, to feel and experience without a care. There were a couple of a times in my life, when I had cancer, when I wondered if I would live to see my children marry...well, this was beyond what I had imagined, and I thank you so very, very much, for the beautiful memories we now will cherish forever! Victoria, we are so fortunate that you came into our lives, and consider you a friend for life! And Heidi, you can be assured that I have already shared and will continue to speak about the best wedding planning team around!
— Mother of the Bride, Jayne
We had such a wonderful experience with your company last weekend at Tamarack. Victoria was extraordinary under tough weather circumstances. She was the perfect blend of very nice and accommodating, but assertive when necessary. She had the diplomacy of a United Nations representative! We had to move all the tables inside a hall because of wind and rain, and back out again when sunshine returned. Can’t thank her enough!
— David Bettis
Choosing Ira + Lucy was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. We used their ‘Enhanced Day-Of Coordination’ package. We were on a tight budget and struggled with the idea of spending money on something that we couldn’t quite conceptualize, but felt very strongly about not wanting our friends and family to have to set up and take down our wedding. Once we met Victoria we realized why we needed her!! Always sweet and professional, she is an excellent problem solver and helped us with some major issues right off the bat. She would come over, check on us frequently, and took the time to get to know us. I literally want to frame the ‘concept boards’ she sent us - whenever the wedding seemed stressful I always would look at them because they reminded us of the important things we wanted, and looked like OUR wedding! On the wedding day, she and the team absolutely delivered. She shielded me from the chaos of a wind and rainstorm (for our outside reception) and the team actually ended up moving everything inside and back outside again when the weather cleared up. It was so much extra work for them and the whole team remained professional and on the ball the entire time. All the other vendors absolutely loved them. Victoria quietly and calmly presented us with options whenever something went wrong and we were able to enjoy every second of our wedding. If you are on the fence like we were, it was the best money we spent. I feel like we can’t thank her enough and we have made a true friend! Despite being able to handle huge luxurious weddings, they also were able to meet us where we were at for our smaller, rustic wedding and never pushed our budget. In fact, Victoria suggested many ways for us to save money that we hadn’t considered. I’m positive she went above and beyond for us multiple times, and don’t want to make promises outside the packages offered, so I will just say if you have Victoria on your team, you will not regret it! I wish I got a picture with her on our wedding day!
— Bride, Brooke
One of the best wedding gifts was not worrying about anything (except my vows...) on the big day. Victoria just ‘got us’ from the beginning and the wedding was just as we imagined - but prettier and better organized. As I told our friends and family, if it looked nice, it was because we had nothing to do with it. It was all Ira + Lucy. Thank you!
— Groom, Tom

SENIOR PLANNER, ERIN’S REVIEWS

Where to even begin with Ira and Lucy! They were the very first decision that we made in planning our wedding, and also the best. We were lucky enough to work with Erin as our senior coordinator. Within planning a wedding, it is impossible that everything goes smoothly, but through the ups and downs, Erin walked alongside us and made sure we made the right decisions and that everything was going to work out perfectly for us. She spent so much time meeting with us, working tirelessly on our wedding, Facetime calls, vendor meetings, etc. and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. She made sure that we left no stone unturned as we planned this day, so that the day of the wedding we would have nothing to worry about. She communicated with vendors and made sure everything was properly coordinated. She was simply amazing. I seriously cannot imagine what planning our wedding would have been like without Erin. We had some inclement weather forecasted for the day of the wedding, and Erin and Ira and Lucy helped us secure a tent last minute for the ceremony so that we could move forward with the outdoor ceremony we had hoped for. Erin didn’t even bat an eye when we had to make major changes to layouts just a few days before the ceremony, and made sure that every changed detail was still absolutely perfect. On the day of the wedding, everything was flawless. The venue looked like something out of a magazine, thanks to Erin’s ability to take our vision and bring it to life. We did not have to worry about anything the whole day of the wedding, and were able to enjoy time with our bridal party, friends, family and each other. Having them there removed almost all stress we felt around our wedding day, and everything ran so smoothly. We have had countless family and friends tell us how amazing the wedding was, how well the timeline flowed, how beautiful everything looked…and it is all thanks to Ira and Lucy. Erin and her team were outstanding at executing every little detail we had planned. Having attended many weddings in the Boise area, I can confidently say that Ira and Lucy is the premier wedding planning/coordinating company in the area. We cannot even imagine having planned our wedding without the guidance and help of Ira and Lucy. It was the most valuable and important piece in bringing our dream wedding to life. If you choose Ira and Lucy to help you with your big day, you will not regret it.

VENDOR REVIEWS

Heidi at Ira + Lucy is amazing to work with! We truly enjoy working with her because she closely coordinates with all of the vendors, covers every detail and goes above and beyond to ensure that the event is perfectly put together. Her style is classically stunning, she is responsive, professional and an absolute sweetheart. We are so excited to work the Ira + Lucy again!
— A Lively Chef Catering
As a DJ and lighting company, we rely heavily on the design and attention to detail of the event designers and decorators that we work with. We can not say enough good thing about Ira & Lucy in this regard. Heidi and her team are incredibly creative, attentive and deliver exceptional customer service. Heidi goes above and beyond (even after hours) to make sure her brides needs are met and they have a special and memorable day. She will even create custom pieces of furniture or decor to meet the design vision of one of her clients - whatever it takes! As a coordinator she is thorough and communicates clearly to all involved parties so her events go smoothly and seamlessly. We highly recommend Ira & Lucy!!!!!!
— Sound Wave Events
We love working with Ira + Lucy on so many fronts. Not only have they helped many of our couples create a beautiful vintage and chic atmosphere for their wedding, but we have also used them to set the tone for many of our events. From adorning our Chapel with quaint Christmas decor for Santa’s visit and our Christmas Eve service to a romantic and classy look for our Bridal Social, we are always amazed at the beautiful work Heidi does. We also love working with their whole team who always have smiles on and such kind hearts. They are willing to think outside the box and their creativity is amazing!
— Still Water Hollow
Ira + Lucy have been a pleasure to work with! I am the owner of Rhodes Entertainment and had the opportunity to work two weddings (so far) with Heidi and her staff. They are professional, detail-oriented and hard-working, yet very creative and lots of fun. A great skill set to have when orchestrating and designing an important day like a wedding. 5 Stars!
— Rhodes Entertainment
If you want a magazine worthy wedding, Ira + Lucy will pull out the stops to make it happen! We are always thrilled to get the chance to work with them. Heidi (+ team) is very thorough and experienced in what they do. For a wedding that will make the Instagram community crap its pants, you might want to consider hiring Ira + Lucy! (Sorry, I really couldn’t think of a better way to say that, LOL)
— Ampersand Studios
Ira + Lucy’s rentals bring something more personal and unique to an event, whether it’s drama, whimsy or romance. They put thought and care into bringing out the personality in their beautiful furniture items and detail pieces, pairing an item perfectly with each occasion. Their enthusiasm in what they do is contagious, and any event is more exciting when they’re in the room. : )
